As all my dear friends, family and co-workers can attest, I have always been a good burper. Well, when I say ‘good’, I actually mean bad – like embarrassingly often, very loud burps, usually accompanied by a sore stomach. It took me many years to finally realise that maybe my reaction had something to do with what I was eating. Since then, I’ve eliminated various foods from my diet, trying to work out what was upseting my stomach. Recently (and reluctantly) I’ve had to admit that gluten is not my body’s friend, and I’ve also come to realise that if I follow a low-FODMAP diet, the belching and belly pains go away. Lots of people are affected by FODMAPs (turn to p15 for details), and in this issue we cater…

PICK OF THE BUNCH CUSTARD APPLE | BANANA | BEETROOT | CELERY | JERUSALEM ARTICHOKE | TANGELO CUSTARD APPLE With its lumpy green skin and large black seeds, custard apple’s only edible part is the flesh — best consumed very ripe when it’s refreshingly gooey and sweet. When buying, look for fruit that is pale green and gives a little when pressed, in the same way an avocado does The fruit (an excellent source of vitamin C) has fragile skin, so it’s normal to find a few black spots on the exterior. Ripe fruit will keep in the fridge for up to three days, but allow it to stand at room temperature for 10 minutes before eating. PERFECT PARTNERS: Passionfruit, yoghurt, prawns, cinnamon, orange, vanilla, nutmeg, lemon, mint. QUICK IDEA: Toast slices of sourdough Top with…
